To combat the literacy coach's frustration over their responsibilities in the face of inconsistent job credentials, various experience levels, and lack of professional development, this book will provide the guidance and resources to support coaching and its multi-faceted demands. With tips and suggestions on how to maintain organization and focus within the early and elementary literacy programs, the book will address literacy for young children from the top down.
"If a coach could only have one book to help with the daunting task of advancing teachers’ instructional knowledge and skills, then this is the text to own. Coaches everywhere have been waiting for a book like this!"
"Anyone who reads this book will feel more knowledgeable and be able to implement specific ideas and strategies immediately."
“An excellent resource for both beginning and experienced literacy coaches. This well-conceived book is grounded in a realistic understanding of what it means to work collaboratively and effectively in the demanding world of today's schools.”
